Artist INC Live Oklahoma City is a cutting-edge training program that addresses the specific business needs and challenges of artists. Limited to 25 participants, artists gather once a week for eight weeks to learn business skills specific to their art practice and apply those skills cooperatively with their peers.

Artists are selected for the program through a competitive application process and panel comprised of community arts leaders and artists, representing a range of artistic disciplines.

This year’s class includes comedians, writers, visual artists, performers, musicians and comic book creators. The class has been working very hard for the past seven weeks to strengthen their artistic careers with tools and skills in arts planning, marketing, finance, law and technology.
